Editors' pick

Pat Metheny Unity Group, Bruce Hornsby

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Sure, he's won 20 Grammys, but guitarist Pat Metheny has seldom received the kind of acclaim accorded his Unity ensembles. The group's new album, "Zin," boasts a more expansive scope and vibrantly textured Unity sound. In fact, Metheny has described the transition from quartet to quintet as sonically moving from black-and-white to Technicolor. Fair enough, but whatever the band's configuration, Unity excels at creating music that possesses exceptional energy, beauty and soul. By the way, don't be surprised if at Wolf Trap, Metheny goes out of his way to showcase his wonderfully gifted Washington-bred bassist Ben Williams. At the Filene Center.
